Day 1 of Bells is in the books. In clean 3 to 4 foot surf the women were in the water first and ran through the entire first round. Â The men got it started later in the day and made it all the way to the 9th heat of round one. If you’re like me and missed most of the action we’ve got highlights, heat scores, and photos below that should help you get all caught up.
